I want to use the 5 star german chocolate cake recipe here on CC but I can not get German Chocolate squares anywhere. Is their a substitution, can I use semi-sweet?

Isn't German Chocolate a very mild chocolate? You could use semi-sweet or another dark chocolate, but I'd worry that it might be too strong. I'd probably substitute a milk chocolate. It just depends on what flavor your going for. thumbs_up.gif On the other hand....anything made with chocolate (it doesn't matter what kind) has to be wonderful!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

special dark is sweeter than semi sweet, so it does a good job of substituting. We use it all the time in German Chocolate cake
